Tennessee OT sees Clemson twice

This under the radar offensive tackle from eastern Tennessee visited Clemson for two games this season.

Chandler Greer made trips to Tigertown for the Furman and N.C. State games.

He spoke with CUTigers shortly after the Tigers beat the Wolfpack.

"It was a shootout, I'll tell you that much. It was awesome," Greer said. "Clemson is great. I went up to the Furman game earlier in the year. Just the change of atmosphere and the fans, the tailgating was awesome, too."

Greer, who's from Bearden High School in Knoxville, has been around plenty of big-time football over the years.

"It was every bit as loud as Neyland [Stadium], I'll tell you what. It was hype," he said.

What stands out about Clemson on game day?

"I really like coach [Dabo] Swinney a lot. He's great. He seems like a real class-A guy. Then, the campus itself, it's a great education.

"I have a lot of family that live close to Clemson and that are some Clemson graduates and some great fans," he added. "The atmosphere in South Carolina, I really do like. It just feels like home. I feel like I'd be comfortable there."

Greer also took two visits to Duke. Tennessee, Maryland, Georgia Tech and a few Southern Conference schools have expressed interest.

The 6-foot-5, 255-pound prospect is still waiting for his first offer, and he thinks Duke could be first.

Even though he's yet to pick up that first offer, two schools stand out.

"Clemson is far, far up there," Greer said. "Duke's a high contender, as well. It's hard not to pick Clemson. And you can't go wrong with Duke either. I'll be blessed if I get the opportunity to go to either one of those schools."
